Information Report- Spiders

This Information report is going to be about Spiders. I am investigating their Spitting Distance, Webs, Where some Spiders live and all different types of Spiders
There are all different types of webs that spiders can weave such as The Scaffold web, The Triangle web, The Lace Sheet web, The Hammock web and lots more. The scaffold web has stretched trap lines with sticky ends attached to the ground. The Lace-Sheet web is a trap spun by a lace web weaver is made of fine woolly silk.
7 Legs???
In a last ditch attempt to escape a predator that had it by its eighth leg, one spider shed its leg and ran away. Many spiders will cut off their own legs in response to danger. There is no limit on how much legs a spider must have, as long as they can manage to eat. The legs are often completely regrown if the spider has more molts to go through.
Spitting Distance
Spitting Spiders can’t actually catch a fly, so they deliver its paralysing venom from a distance, when they get within a body length of its victim they shoot streams at its victim, it shoots streams of sticky venom from its venom glands all over the fly, which roots the fly to the spot.
Living under ground
Living under ground can have big advantages, except when it rains and the burrow floods. But Trap Door spiders build a flood barrier of twigs around the entrance to keep the rain from ruining its silk lined home. If a predator such as a giant centipede barges in, the Trap Door spider retreats into a secret chamber in the side wall and pulls the door shut. When it is clear that no one is home then the centipede gets bored and leaves.
Wandering Spider
The Brazilian Wandering spider is one of the most dangerous spiders in the world. It is big and aggressive with fast acting venom that can kill in 15 minutes. Luckily it’s not common in heavily populated cities.

The most Important thing about

The most important thing about an I-Pad

Is that you can listen to music on them

It is a bigger version of an I-Pad

And it is easy to carry around

It has games on it

And most houses have one

But the most important thing about an I-pad is that you can listen to music on them

The most important thing about a Book

Is that you can find information on them

It is read on I-Pads

And there is a book called a Dictionary

It helps you learn

And people like reading it

But the most important thing about I-Pads is that you can find information on them

The most important thing about a House

Is that you live in them

It keeps you warm

And nearly everyone has one

It helps you live

And you put appliances in them

But the most important about a House is that you live in them

“the car stopped suddenly”

The car stopped suddenly. I was going to run but I didn’t, there was something weird about the guy in the car. I walked over to the brown convertible with the guy wearing black inside. The window went down, and then I say “who are you?” he doesn’t answer so I just keep on walking. He was following me the whole way home. When I got home he was in my lounge room, I sprinted aggressively up to my room. He knocked on the door and told me it was ok. He was my brother, playing a prank on me.

103 Word Challenge – something special to me

This is a Basketball, I love playing basketball, not just playing it but the feeling of winning a match and when you lose you just want to win the next games. I love the feeling of dribbling down the court and not stopping to finally get to the ring and put shot up. No-one likes getting thrashed every game or winning every game because basketball is a sport where you have fun and that is definitely not fun.

When I played my first game of basketball I was exhilarated to get on the court and find out if I was good at this sport or I needed work. After that game I figured out I was normal at basketball but I still needed a bit of work on some specific areas. Even if you are the best player in your league then there is always at least one thing that you need to work on. My first game I figured out that I needed to work on my shooting and my layups.

I wanted to do something about it so I joined a team that plays in Geelong called the Surf Coasters and that really helped because once I joined it there was very good coaches that have had experience with basketball by playing and coaching so they could understand what the players felt like. I am now very confident about my shooting and my layups and when I get the chance I thank my coaches because everyone forgets they are the reason that you are improving.

Everyone who is playing basketball, keep it up and the people who aren’t playing basketball, try it you find that you are perfect for it.
